What people are saying...

"Miss Ann,
I haven't had the opportunity to tell you yet, but I was blown away by your pictures! When Jack and I were in the middle of looking at them, I wanted to pick up the phone and tell you how in awe I was! You did an absolutely wonderful job capturing the festivities of the day and I am so very impressed!!

Everyone who has seen the pictures already is just as impressed as Jack and I. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for being there and for doing such an amazing job! You are highly recommended to EVERYONE I know!! Thank you to you and your mom! You two make a phenomenal team! Looking forward to seeing you soon! :) You are THE best!!"

"Hi Ann!
We received our package yesterday and OMG! It is perfect! Thank you so much. We’re so thankful we found you to photograph our destination wedding! You were a rock star even when the rain came down, we’re so excited over all the shots you captured!

We also appreciate the fact we were able to view our wedding photos within 2 days after online, so convenient for our worldwide guests! But we were even more surprised that barely a week later we received our amazing coffee table books and proofs in the mail. Thank you so much. And actually, the owner of the hotel really liked you and asked me to send her business cards.

Thank you again for all of your hard work!"

"Dear Ann,
I wanted to let you know that the pictures arrived on Saturday and that night we got together with everyone and looked at them all. Scott and Laura had their honeymoon photos from St. Lucia, so we spent a lot of time passing poofs around. The proofs were wonderful and your choices right on. But, the album was the highlight, your choices for inclusion in the coffee table book was a perfect mix and it got lots of 'oohs and ahhs.' It truly was amazing and Laura's parents, Scott and Laura and Jim and I were thrilled with it. It was just so beautiful.

I also want to tell you that everyone enjoyed working with you they all loved how clever the pictures were and how they captured every moment. I'm so glad that we met and I'm more glad that you agreed to photograph Scott and Laura's wedding. I think several people thought I was nuts, when I made such a big deal about you coming in from Michigan to do this wedding. I think they now understand why I made such a big deal about you taking the pictures and that maybe I wasn't so nuts after all!

You are truly a very precious person and I hope that all of your clients feel about you the way we do. Your work is beautiful and elegant and in my eyes, no one can match you.

Again, thank you for your amazing work."

"Ann,
I want to send you a BIG thank you for all your hard work on Saturday (9-20-08). You really helped to make my best friend's wedding the day she's been dreaming about with your professionalism and style. You were a big help to us the day of the wedding and we couldn't have done it without you.

Your organization and helpful attitude showed how much you care about, not only the work you do, but also each bride you deal with. You also demonstrated an upbeat demeanor and kept everyone happy and moving the entire day. A big thanks is in order for putting up with some of the comments by the guys. You handled that really well (but I am sure you've dealt with sassy men like those before).

Last, and most important, your pictures from Saturday are amazing. I know that Sarah looked extremely beautiful on the day of her wedding but your photos really show how gorgeous she was/is!

Your photographs tell a great story about their wedding day and you didn't miss one detail. I think they are really individualized to what they wanted and the people they are.

So, thank you for everything!! Continue the great work!"

"Ann,
I will try and keep it brief, but the experience with you was amazing. I'd like to share our experience to others who may be planning a destination wedding and debating on bringing in their own photographer....

The location was amazing in itself so that really helped, but the only way to really capture the memories to share with those that were not there, was to hire a professional ... Then we saw Ann's work... We knew right away we had to lock her in. Her work and perspective on her wedding day photos was really captured in her work.

First let's just start with her professionalism. She was very punctual. Her communication was top notch and we always knew what to expect and when. Seeing she was from Michigan, we are from Chicago, and the wedding was in Melbourne, that communication was crucial so that we were all on the same page.

Second let's talk about her energy at the event day. We were married on the ocean so the sun rises on our site. She was up that early in the morning to photograph the sun rise and compile a 'timeline' of our day. From sunrise until the last dance. She kept that energy during the event as well with our family. She was able to pose the family fast and change things up quick enough not to drag out the photo time and allowed us to enjoy the reception and the dinner. Both our family members were very pleased with her over all.

One last thing about the day was the fact we barely knew she was there. By that I mean, she was quiet and discrete, yet was able to catch just amazing angles and pictures during the day.

Last thing is the days after. Our photos were on the web before we even flew back which was just a few days later.
Ann was cool, collected, fun, and delivered on her word everytime.
...This day will fly by before you know it. I barely remember what happened that day. I now can remember vividly based on the photos by Miss Ann. ...Ann was worth every penny and dollar we spent on her. Without her capturing that day, all the other money we spent would have been a waste without having the pictures to remember. Thank you so very much!!"

"Ann,
'Photography was a piece of the wedding puzzle that was very important to me. I take many pictures and I am an avid scrap booker. I had been searching for a photographer who didn’t crush my budget yet still had the quality of pictures I had to have. Needless to say, it seemed like an impossible task.

One day I received a mailing from Ann. Eric and I decided to meet with her. From the moment we walked in I knew she was perfect for our wedding. Ann was at all times prepared, organized, and professional. She returned every phone call or email within hours. My family and I were blown away by her energy and dedication to getting the perfect shot. She knew exactly what to do to get my father and father-in-law to smile and how to get the shot before my maid of honor blinked her eyes.

Not only was Ann wonderful throughout our wedding day but she has been amazing since. Our wedding pictures were on her website for our families to look at the Monday after our Saturday wedding. We had all of our pictures back the day we came back from our honeymoon. Ann has also been flexible in helping to create a package that works for us and our families.

We have had so many compliments on the quality and artistic nature of our photos. Ann captured moments we never would have thought of and moments we couldn’t live without.

I am incredibly thankful for the day that mailing came and to have had Ann photograph our wedding day."

Eric & Erin Borges

"Miss Ann
I can’t tell whether or not I love your enthusiasm or the photos better, lol! We have gotten so many compliments on the photos – I haven’t even gotten to take a good look at all of them ‘cause everyone is “Let me see! Let me see!.”

I don’t know if Luke and I look at each other like that all the time or if you are just exceptional at what you do, but either way, I love them! Many thanks!!!!"

Carrie Kilbourn and Luke Pachal

"Miss Ann,
We got our photos in the mail Saturday morning (11-3). You did such a beautiful job, we just couldn't be happier.
You really didn't miss a thing.
Thank you so much for capturing our special day."

"Dear Miss Ann,
... I just wanted to thank you for all of your time and help in making our wedding so memorable. I have so many wonderful pictures to choose from that we had such a difficult time figuring out which ones to put into frames.
We LOVE your work, and are very thankful for you capturing so many wonderful memories.
Thanks so much for your dedication to your job.
You are truly an artist!!!"

Many thanks, and many smiles,

"Thanks again Ann.
You did a lovely job.
Our family has really been delighted with the pictures.
I may give you a call about the gallery wrapped photos on canvas.
I've seen them before and know of a couple photos already we would like to enlarge...boy am I in trouble,
I have another 100 photos to look at still!"

Deb Johnson

"Miss Ann,
Your photo's capture love in action...
In years to come, they will look at these photos and recall the explosion of love! Thank You for taking the time to get the perfect memories every time."

Kathy Sprott

"Hi Ann!
All I have to say to you is, you are amazing.
The pics are amazing!!! You truly have a gift of photography and I feel so lucky to have had you for our wedding. The day was amazing, except for the cake incident :-) but you were right, that is a great pic!!
Thank you so much for everything."

"Miss Ann,
Jonathan and I LOVE our pictures!!!
They turned out so much better than what we expected. We've gotten so many comments on them. I've given out most of the cards you gave us and recommended you to a wedding coordinator we know. Also Jonathan's sister told us when she gets married, she would love to use you as well.
Thanks so much for everything. The day was just amazing.  We can't say enough about it. Thanks again.
The pictures are GREAT!!!!!!!"

April and Jonathan Distel

"Ann-

We received everything in the mail yesterday

Thank you!"

Sara and Josh Bryan

“Ann,
It's been almost 2 years since our wedding and I was looking back at our wedding pictures you took and wanted to let you know what an amazing job you did. You captured so many details that I did not get to see that day and amazing memories I am able to look back on. Thank you again!"

Meghan Rybarczyk

"Dear Ann,
We have been truly impressed by you from the very beginning. From your prompt responses and follow up, we never had to be concerned that you would not deliver. But beyond that, your extreme professionalism made our guests not only look their best but feel comfortable. People say, “the camera takes what it sees.” Well your camera must be special, because every shot was amazing and everyone is ecstatic! Most of all, we want to say “thank you” for perfectly capturing one of the most important chapters in our life journey. You artfully used your camera to tell our story. We will cherish each photo for the rest of our lives."

Chris and Dwayne White

“Ann,
It rained on our honeymoon one day and we were able to pop on and see our wedding photos and we were speechless! We can hardly believe it was our wedding day it went so fast!! Thank you so much, you did a fantastic job, especially with keeping everyone in line and on task. You are so fast- everyone is so shocked that we already have our pictures, thanks for being on top of it!"

Paige Merrigan

“Ann,
Thank you so much
for you help throughout the day. You were not only our wedding photographer but my awesome wedding coordinator by keeping everyone on time and keen eye to all the specific details. We all loved your spirit and keen eye to details (including sewing my train!)! You are a sweetheart, thank you sincerely. We enjoyed having you apart of our day!"

Sharana and Devon

“Miss Ann…
The pictures are absolutely gorgeous, we love them! The album is fabulous, brought a tear to our eyes because you truly captured everything. (Even my very unhappy mother in law!). We can't ever thank you enough Miss Ann...We want to take a moment to share with you what a bright spot you were in this ever changing planning and wedding process. Your vibrant personality was evident from your first email to us and we really appreciate it.Your enthusiasm and ever-changing creativity was evident and endless in every photograph. You have an uncanny ability to freeze such an epic moment in time for us. Thank you ever so much!"
